Lung Ha Touring Company

August 2024 sees the inaugural production of the Lung Ha Touring Company, which will provide further opportunities for performers to create and tour new and existing work, with bespoke and specialist actor training.

Its first production will be a remounting of our 2021 hit An Unexpected Hiccup at the Edinburgh Festival Fringe, the world’s biggest stage.

Lung Ha has also commissioned initial research to develop an Access and Creative Principles Toolkit, which will support the launch of the Touring Company. The research aims to cover three main areas:

  1. To understand the access support structures required for learning-disabled actors in a professional company.  
  2. To apply fair and equitable pay remuneration frameworks for ourselves and other theatre companies working with actors and artists in receipt of varied and complex benefit arrangements. 
  3. To create a practical toolkit for working with learning-disabled actors which has a wider culture sector benefit and application. 

The first publication of findings is expected in spring 2025. The project is funded by The RS Macdonald Charitable Trust.
